I was wondering if it is possible to turn the screen off when using the camera as a webcam. having the screen on is a waste of power and it gets quite warm. Question applies to both the Git2 & Git3.

ive used webcam mode on both, when in webcam it uses base novatek webcam mode, which disables all the usual camera features, the only thing you get is base FOV, so it is a non wifi way to check camera positioning etc, not really for long term use.

Had a bit of a play - haven't got any further with switching screen off, but camera appears to support 320x240, 640x480, 1280x720 & 1920x1440 modes as a webcam on both Git2 & 3. I haven't tried any other features yet.

Support 720P in web cam is OK.
We checked this before, to turn off the screen in web cam require lots of development work, currently no plan to optimize it.
